The first reference to the historic port of Leith dates from 1140, and the town constantly features in the power struggles that took place in Scotland. In the 1960s the face of Leith changed forever: the brimming tenements, shops, pubs and small workshops along the old and ancient thoroughfares in the heart of the town were destined for redevelopment. The Kirkgate, St Andrew Street, Tolbooth Wynd, Bridge Street and many more would disappear during the decade. Today, Leith is a thriving port and cruise line destination with many excellent hotels, restaurants and bars.Leith History Touris a unique insight into the illustrious history of this old port and shows just how much it has changed during the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Readers are invited to follow local authors Jack Gillon and Fraser Parkinson as they guide them through its streets and alleyways, pointing out the well-known and lesser-known landmarks along the way.
